Liberal Texas lawmaker Jessica Farrar from Houston sent a letter to Texas Gov. Rick Perry demanding that his campaign reimburse the state for the cost of his security detail that guarded Perry on the campaign trail. The total cost to taxpayers of Texas for the security via the Texas Rangers, was $2.6 million.

The Texas Rick Perry team unloads on campaign senior adviser Joe Allbaugh. He was apparently tough to work for. One anonymous staffer said, “I’d rather take a shower with Jerry Sandusky than go through another month of this.”
Jay Root feeds on campaign staffer discontent, and writes a good insider story sourced 98% anonymously that you probably don't want to miss.
The Perry campaign released the ad above today, with Anita Perry making the case that Texas Gov. Rick Perry has the proper values to be president. This ad strikes to the heart of the theme of the Faith, Freedom and Jobs Iowa bus tour and today, journalists who are trailing Perry through Iowa offer their impressions of the effectiveness of the tour.
Now more than ever I can convinced that the belief in Jesus Christ and the homosexual agenda are diametrically opposed. And if there has ever been something to display this dichotomy, it's Texas Gov. Rick Perry's "Strong" ad (above). It has created a firestorm of reaction, primarily from homosexual activists and fellow travelers. Yesterday, Perry's Facebook page was practically defaced.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry was in Johnston, Iowa Jun 3, 2011 and was asked a question about banking regulations and bailouts. He noted that the Dodd-Frank financial regulations only codified the problems that caused the 2008 financial crisis and that a President Perry will not be in favor or bailouts. "If you're too big to fail, you're too big," Perry said. Watch the rest on video above>
Since Herman Cain, bless his soul, is out there in front now giving credibility to the Washington Post's un-sourced pseudo issue attack on Rick Perry for the historical name for the Perry family hunting lease, it's nice to read some sourced information on Perry's real record on race at The Texas Tribune:
The Texas Tribune has an article this week with profiles of students who have benefited from the in-state tuition for illegal aliens.
In 2004, Karla Reséndiz graduated near the top of her class at Rockwall High School outside of Dallas. She was a member of the National Honor Society, captain of the fencing team and the leader of the school's junior Rotary Club.
I have to admit that I really like Texas monthly, the magazine. I also really like The Texas Tribune, whose co-founder Evan Smith cut his teeth running that magazine. But only when the Tribune is being fair to my point of view. They have published "Cliffs Notes" of Rick Perry's book Fed Up!. I think it's a good summary. Do you think it's fair?
